I can't shake off this dark cloud
it seems like it's been the only thing in my life for years
what's the point in being here
when life is spent asking that question over again?

changing your surroundings
it won't do you any good
cause you carry this with you

if we had the choice between
all the things you left us
or having you here with us now
if we had the choice between
all the things you left us
or having you here now
what would we choose?

did you think this soil would change its properties
just because you took it to a garden further south?
I can't stay in, I can't go out
this feeling follows me about
when you never even knew me
how can you claim to feel any pain?

thing's didn't go wrong - they just changed
and when I felt it coming on again...

if we had the choice between
all the things you left us
or having you here with us now
if we had the choice between
all the things you left us
or having you here now
what would we choose?

we only want you here so you can give us more
that's why we're sad
we want songs like you wrote before
and is your death really any worse
than any other boy or girl's
when we never even knew you?

so come back, come back
but you won't come back
cause you can't come back!

if you had the choice between
all the things you left us
or being with us now
what would you choose?
